About This Town

The name Omagh is an anglicisation of the Irish name an Óghmaigh (modern Irish an Ómaigh), meaning "the virgin plain". A monastery was apparently established on the site of the town about 792, and a Franciscan friary was founded in 1464. Omagh was founded as a town in 1610. It served as a refuge for fugitives from the east of County Tyrone during the 1641 Rebellion. In 1689, James II arrived at Omagh, en route to Derry. Supporters of William III, Prince of Orange, later burned the town.

The town is at the centre of three rivers. The Camowen and Drumragh rivers meet to form the Strule river near the town centre, which then goes onto flow into the Foyle river. The town is a gAteway to the Sperrin mountains and is 34 miles from Derry City and 70 miles from Belfast.
